Back in January, Nokia started rolling out the PR 1.2 software update for the developer only Meego handset, the Nokia N950. Considering that the N9 is the consumer version of the N950, it was only a matter of time before Nokia released the update for the former.
Now, more than a month after the N950 got the update, Nokia has started rolling out the PR 1.2 software update for the N9. The PR 1.2 software update adds a bunch of new features to the last Meego handset from the company including video calling, improved photography, an updated version of Nokia Drive and folders support for the app drawer among other things.
For all the camera enthusiasts, the N9 now supports continuous auto-focus while recording videos. The software update also reduces the shutter lag on the N9 to nearly zero, like on the Galaxy Nexus, thus snapping moments instantly!
Post the software update, users will also be able to tag their friends in a photo they will be uploading using the new face recognition technology. Using the Google Talk video call app, users can also make video calls to their loved ones. Other changes in the software update include improved web browsing history, improved copy and paste, support for five new languages – Thai, Hebrew, Persian, Vietnamese and Kazak, the ability to create playlists in the stock music player, and enhancements to Mail for Exchange.
The software update contains many other changes, which N9 owners can find in details over here. The update is already live so simply connect your handset to a Wi-Fi network, and you will be automatically notified that a new software update is available for your handset.
